One approach would be to store multiple parameters on one line.
You then have fewer keys:

RinseSettingQuantities=bkPulses,bkDuration, ...
RinseSettingValues=5,30.0, ...

That could be easier, especially if you always write or read all values
to the file at one time.

Excellent idea. I rarely consider using arrays due to hearing and
reading that you should keep your data "as flat as possible", but
there's got to be a trade off eventually. I'm using 7 keys to
read/write 7 scalers - your examble uses one!
